Last month, a new model for the OnePlus TV appeared on the Bluetooth SIG database. It is interesting to note that the same database leaked the Q1 Smart TV lineup months before the launch of 2019. Talking about the fresh listing, the report noted “1+ LED TV” and “1+ Remote Control” in the database. These are similar to the names that surfaced before the Q1 series launch.
The new smart tv listing gives a rough indication of other aspects of the hardware of the unreleased product. The listing also revealed that the device will sport an updated MediaTek MT5670 SoC. MediaTek launched this SoC back in September 2019 with a quad-core CPU and AI-powered enhancement features.
